Response of a water column to internal waves of known frequencies
Lounsbery, William John
MetadataShow full item record
A program is developed to ascertain the response of a frictionless water column to internal waves. Using density strata as input, the program selects ten frequencies at equal intervals within a spectrum of internal waves bounded above by the maximum Vaisala frequency and below by the inertial frequency. Ray paths within the column are plotted for these frequencies. The first ten normal modes for each frequency are computed. The first three modes are plotted.
